KIA's EV Plan
The EV6 is only the start of Kia and Hyundai’s EV plans for India that include bringing six all-electric models by 2024.
About the Brand
Given that Kia is set to bring the EV6 as a CBU (full import), no changes are expected to be made to its design, features, e-GMP platform or electric powertrain. The EV6 makes use of Kia’s latest ‘Opposites United’ design philosophy that gives the electric crossover a sleek and sporty overall look.
